Working Together To Help In Greece

Canon Malcolm Bradshaw writes from Athens;

The Anglican Chaplaincy in Greece is cooperating ecumenically with a number of different church groups assisting refugees in Athens. We're glad to announce our support to the Salvation Army for the position of an interpreter who will assist refugees on Victoria Square. The Salvation Army’s day centre allows refugees a safe place to rest and take provisions they might need either for their stay in Athens or their onward journey. One of the great challenges is providing good information so that refugees can make safe choices and avoid expensive and dangerous smuggling rings. The Salvation Army is soon to benefit from a Dari (Afghan language) interpreter to help improve communication with the refugees they are assisting. The position will be fully funded by the Anglican Church and an agreement was signed between Fr. Malcolm, Janette O’Neill of United Society and Major Polis Pantelidis on Monday.
